Our man in Paris — British journalist Jonny Jacobsen — has a special report for us today about what's been happening in Switzerland. Almost a year since the last new "Ideal Org" opened in Sydney on May 4, 2014, a new one is set to open this weekend. That's a much slower pace than Scientology leader David Miscavige was on in past years, an indication perhaps of how much more difficult it has become to raise funds from a dwindling membership.

Jacobsen has been talking to the locals, and he sets us up for this weekend's festivities. Take it away, Jonny...

Local residents and critics of Scientology — including former members — are mobilizing Saturday in Basel, Switzerland, to protest the official opening of the latest "Ideal Org."
